Wharariki Beach Walking Track, Golden Bay
(5/5 based on 110+ reviews on the web)
Marvel at one of the most stunning beaches in New Zealand at Wharariki Beach Walking Track, which follows a shoreline with crashing waves, big sand dunes, and towering cliffs. Trekking the entire beach can take several hours, so plan your visit with plenty of time to spare. Wear warm clothing to protect you from the intense wind, and consider visiting during low tide when the most sand is exposed. If you would rather ride than walk, check out horseback riding services instead. Plan your visit to Wharariki Beach Walking Track and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Collingwood vacation generator.
